A stellar one-man batting show by Shubman Gill followed up by a clinical bowling performance effort by Lockie Ferguson helped Gujarat Titans beat Delhi Capitals by 14 runs in the 10th match of the IPL 2022.
Opening the batting, Shubman played a sparkling knock of 84 from 46 balls and took Gujarat Titans to a competitive total of 171-6 in 20 overs. It was also Gill’s highest T20 score.
Apart from Gill, skipper Hardik Pandya (31 off 27) and David Miller (20 not out off 15) also made valuable contributions with the bat for Gujarat after being asked to bat first at Pune’s MCA Stadium.
For Delhi, Mustafizur Rahman (3/23) was the highest wicket-taker while Khaleel Ahmed (2/34) and Kuldeep Yadav (1/32) also chipped in with wickets.
In reply, Ferguson’s 4/24 rattled the Delhi Capitals’ batting line-up with his sheer pace. Apart from him, Mohammed Shami (2/30) also picked wickets at crucial junctures for Gujarat.
The likes of Rishabh Pant (43), Lalit Yadav (25), and Rovman Powell (20) tried hard but it was not enough as Delhi Capitals were restricted to 157-9 in 20 overs.
